What is a chromebook

What *is* a ChromeBook?


What is a chromebook1

  • It looks like a laptop, but it isn’t!

  • Features:

    • No hard drive, CD, etc.

    • USB only

    • Student-proofing

    • No Ethernet, so…

  • Just a browser, apps, and a keyboard

What *is* a ChromeBook?


What is a chromebook2

  • You can think of a ChromeBook as:

  • An Internet-dependent tablet

  • That starts up super fast

  • Powered by Google’s Chrome operating system

  • With the only app natively stored on the device being a browser

  • Everything else is composed of Web apps (email, photos, documents), or apps that run while you’re connected to a network.

  • Of course, this means there’s very little you can do on the ChromeBook without Internet access.

  • The high point about everything being saved on the Web is that you’ll have access to it from any computer.

  • Plus, if a ChromeBook ever bites the dust, students won’t have to worry about losing all their apps, documents, and settings.
